7:31 am
dates any time soon. pippa middleton, single. what's next for the world's most popular bachelorette? he was there in london. it could happen. >> that would be a story. >> that would be our lead story. but first the casey anthony trial. word through the weekend, grisly testimony as the prosecutors planned to lay out the testimony for week four. ashleigh banfield joins us. >> reporter: people are coming all over the u.s. from new york, to california, to chicago and denver. they're all turning out to see what more the prosecution has on casey anthony. in a gruesome turn, jurors heard for the first time that the body of 2-year-old caylee anthony may have kept in her mother's trunk for five days. >> three, four, five days in the trunk of that car with that
7:32 am
heat, would have certainly produced enough of the purged fluids. >> reporter: they heard that caylee's body was moved from the trunk and dumped in the woods shortly after she disappeared. >> i had no question that body was out there for many, many months. >> reporter: all of this based on the science of bugs associated with decomposition that were found both in casey's trunk and on caylee's remains. remains shown in court, along with what was left of caylee's tiny clothe, a tag reading toddler size 3-t. a debate led to outright laughter from the court. >> they were collected from the garbage bag. >> that says trash bag there. >> reporter: even usually stone-faced casey cracked a smile. the defense has maintained that caylee wasn't murdered but accidentally drowned.
7:33 am
>> even being put in a bag is a red flag for homicide and never seen an accidental death. >> reporter: but anthony's defense team shot back. >> you don't know if that duct tape had anything to do with the disposal or death? >> true. >> reporter: if the drama isn't enough inside, take outside. crowds rush for one of the 50 seats in the courtroom. lines forming as early as 1:00 a.m. all this to catch a glimpse of what some people call the trial of this century. and of course the judge himself even likened this to o.j. the trial of last century. japan had television cameras there on thursday. george, it's been remarkable the level of interest. i'm going to tell you, i thought i might tweet one or two things per hour on this trial, i have sent over 1,000 tweets since this trial began. >> there will be many more today.
7:34 am
let's bring in dan abrams right now, our legal analyst. let's start out with this media circus. any effect? >> it shouldn't. i remember when i covered the o.j. simpson case, outside there were long lines. the minute you got upstairs, it was quiet. no question that the defense attorney could later on say, look at the scene here, how could my client gotten a fair trial? >> over the last three weeks the prosecution laying out what it appears from the outside a pretty devastating case, now you're seeing the defense for at least the second time moving for a mistrial? >> that's right. this time, based on a video that the prosecutors introduced that showed little caylee and it transformed into the remains. it was intended to show that the duct tape was a murder weapon. it was a risky move, if the prosecutors keep pushing the
7:35 am
envelope, they are opening up the possibility that on an appeal, some other judges could say, you know what some of this shouldn't have been allowed in and ordering a new trial. there's no question that we're seeing prosecutors who are pushing the envelope. this is a video that they created. they're the ones that put her face and let it transformed into her remains. >> the only big hole so far in the prosecution's case, no official cause of death? >> that's right. that's why, as we talking about this weekend, it was so important, who talked about the cause of death, she didn't say, i can tell you the cause of death based on the body itself. i can tell you the cause of death based on everything else that was found with the body, the duct tape, where it was, et cetera. that's a real opening for the defense. but, because the defense said that george anthony did so much
7:36 am
of this, makes it harder. they have already said that it was george, again, i think, something that would have been an easier defense to pursue. >> let's get the weather with sam champion. quick pictures of d.c. when the storms moved through there. these storms have been pretty tough with us. here where these storms are rolling during the day today. keep an eye out for the strong winds through north platte through k.c. over the next two or three days, it's the northeast that stays cool. if you think that today is a little bit cloudy and damp, tomorrow it's even more so. quick look at the big board where the severe storms are in the middle and the big heat in

blame. i'm not just a serial cheater. i'm ill here. so, it's not to say that sex addiction doesn't exist -- >> you think it does? >> i think in some cases it does but not nearly to the degree in which it's being proclaimed or diagnosed. people who are sex addicted are not in the driver's seat. they are completely out of control. they're engaging in extremely high-risk behaviors, putting them at physical or legal risks. they're not able to stop themselves. >> how do you treat it? >> well, even in those cases, a 12-step program isn't necessarily the best plan or the plan that's going to work best. it's really about figuring out what void inside you the sex or the sex acting out. this is a case with weiner, a
8:21 am

the attacks and controversies that i wasn't prepare for, then you had the racy photos, just a pole dancing class that was portrayed as something else, then, you know, people didn't like the fact that i was on wwe reality show. i think everything has come down since then. >> that's a lot. but you know, you bring up some excellent point, the photos from the pole dancing, it wasn't a contest. in 2007, before you were crowned, do you think it's fair to bring up what happened four years before you became miss usa? >> i think because of the image that miss usa should present, lot of people are going to take a piece of your success or look into your background to see if you should be miss usa.
8:25 am
unfortunately, those pictures were taken into something that they weren't. let's say i was what they said i was going to be, then there would have been an issue. the organization looked into the fact that it was just a pole dancing class in the morning and it was something innocent. >> rima, let me ask you something, a debate with our crew again this morning, when i was tracking the set-up piece, you stayed up until 4:00 a.m. crews, okay, she's 25, she stayed out until 4:00 a.m. other said, 4:00 a.m., miss usa. >> i would like to clarify something. you have beauty pageants. then you have the miss universe organization and the miss usa. miss usa is just a real woman.
